Readalong: Stephen King's 11/22/63

I should probably have posted about this earlier, but I wasn't even sure if I could participate until I got the book for Christmas.

Grace at Feeding My Book Addiction is doing a readalong during the month of January for 11/22/63 by Stephen King.  I will be posting my thoughts for the first half on Saturday, January 14th, and the second half on Tuesday, January 31st.  I'll also be popping by the other discussions to share my thoughts.  If 11/22/63 is on your to-read list, it may be a good month to bump it to the top of the list.

Though I read 128 books in 2011, I've downgraded this year's reading challenge to only 100.  Once I'm done with copy edits, I want to make sure I'm devoting that same amount of time to working on my own writing, rather than on reading, so my pace is going to slow.  I'm going to be concentrating on reading books I already own, but, as my husband bought me a Kindle with the Amazon gift cards he got for Christmas, I expect the number of books I own to grow.


  1. Hi Alice! I'm excited you'll be joining my very first readalong. I just loaded my ebook of 11/22/63 to my ereader this afternoon and I can't wait to get reading!

    100 books in 2012 is a great goal! Do you have any writing goals for the new year?

  2. Not really, because I get overwhelmed when I think of anything beyond finishing the next draft of books 2 and 3. I have a nebulous goal of submitting the trilogy for publication in 2012, but I can't even type that without having to stop in the middle for a chocolate break.
